If you have any questions concerning the protection of your personal data or this Privacy Statement, please simply contact this office.
Consent to use of data
Merely using our website or reading this Privacy Statement does not replace the agreement on your part required by law to our collecting, transmitting, processing and using your personal data in the form specified below and for the purposes specified below. We also highlight the fact that, having given your consent, you are entitled at any time to revoke any consent you may previously have given us to record data or use data with effect for the future.
Data collection and logging when accessing our website
You will find information as to which personal data are collected when you visit our website and how they are used by us below:
Each access to our website and its sub-sites is automatically recorded and logged. In particular, the IP address of the computer visiting the site can be recorded and logged. Accordingly, each download, each click or any other retrieval of a retrievable file on our website is also recorded and logged, if applicable. The following are logged in the process: Time of the retrieval (date and time); file name; quantity of data retrieved or transmitted; notification of whether the retrieval or transmission was successful. Delivery and read receipts for emails are also recorded and logged, if applicable.
Recording of additional personal data only on a voluntary basis
Unlike the personal data specified in the previous section, this information is only collected and stored by PARAVAN GmbH, if it has been provided voluntarily, such as in the context of an enquiry by email. We draw attention to the fact that you are entitled at any time to revoke any consent you may previously have given us to record data with effect for the future.
Use and transmission of personal data
If you have transmitted or disclosed personal data to us, PARAVAN GmbH will only use these to execute contracts concluded with us, to process orders placed with us, to answer your questions and for any technical administration, additional file management and settlement. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties by us or otherwise transmitted if this is necessary for the purposes of executing the contract or for settlement purposes, or you have previously given your consent or we are entitled or obliged to do so on the basis of legal provisions. We draw your attention to the fact that you are entitled at any time to revoke any consent you may previously have given us with effect for the future.
Deletion of personal data
Immediately after revoking your consent, we shall delete your personal data unless we are obliged to store them by law; in this case we shall block the data for other uses. Data shall also be deleted if knowledge of the data is no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose pursued by storage or if their storage is or has become no longer permissible for other legal reasons.
Protection against data being spied on by third parties
We shall protect your personal data stored by us against being spied upon illegally by third parties if this is reasonably possible with the help of modern technical and organisational means. Complete data security and confidentiality cannot be guaranteed for email traffic. We therefore recommend that confidential information is transmitted in writing by post or in a face-to-face conversation.
A brief reference regarding cookies
PARAVAN GmbH only uses session-related cookies, as they are known, on this website and its sub-sites. Session cookies are managed on the server and are not stored on your computer’s hard disk. Session cookies make navigation easier when you visit the PARAVAN GmbH website but lose their validity immediately you leave this website. If you visit our website again in future, a new cookie will be created on the server, which will lose its validity again when you leave. Accordingly, the visitor to our website or the visitor’s personal data cannot be identified with the help of a session cookie. If you do not wish to accept cookies of any kind, the help function on most browsers (usually shown in the form of a question mark) will explain how to set your browser to make sure that new cookies are no longer permitted when using the Internet. Many browsers can be set in such a way that your browser will automatically tell you when you have received a new cookie. Your browser’s help function will also explain how you can delete all the cookies you have received from your computer again.
Use of Google Analytics
You can prevent cookies being installed on your browser by setting your browser software to this effect or please click on the following link within browsers on mobile devices to set an opt-out cookie, which will prevent recording by Google Analytics within this website in future (this opt-out cookie will only work in this browser and only for this domain; if you wish to delete cookies in this browser, you must click on this link again): Deactivate Google Analytics; we draw your attention to the fact that it may not be possible to use all this website’s functions in this case. By using this website, you declare your agreement to data collected about you being processed by Google in the type and manner described above and for the purpose specified above.
Data collection and storage by Google may be vetoed at any time with effect for the future. You can find out more about this from tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
In the light of the discussion about the use of analytical tools using complete IP addresses, we should like to draw attention to the fact that this website only uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" and therefore IP addresses are only processed in an abbreviated form to rule out any direct reference to persons.
Use of Google+
In its online presence, PARAVAN GmbH uses Google’s +1 button (often: white “g” and white “+1” on a coloured or dark background and a horizontal bar above). Google+ is a social network run by Google. The way it works is explained in detail on the Google+ website (see plus.google.com).
If you have a user account with Google+ and have logged in there, Google will store and process both the information that you clicked the Google+1 button for certain website content but also the data and information about the website which you were looking at when you clicked the Google+1 button. Your use of the Google+1 button can also be superimposed as information together with your profile or profile name with Google+ and the photo that you use on your Google profile or in Google search results or in your Google profile or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet.
Google stores and processes data on or information about your Google+1 activities to improve Google’s services for you and others. The identity of your Google profiles may be displayed to users who are familiar with your email address or have other personal data about you.
Google may also publish aggregate statistics about the Google+1 activities of all users and pass these onto third parties (e.g. Google’s partners). PARAVAN GmbH has no influence on this.
If you have a user account with Google and refuse to let Google collect personal and/or other data about you and link them with your membership data stored at Google or elsewhere, process or use them, you must log out of your Google account before visiting our website.
You can learn about the purpose and scope of the collection, processing and other use of data by Google as well as your rights regarding this and configuration options for protecting your individual privacy and your personal data from Google’s privacy statement (see www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
Use of Facebook plug-ins
PARAVAN GmbH uses Facebook plug-ins in its online presence. A plug-in is a software module, which is discovered by a software application during its runtime and integrated to extend its functionality. Facebook plug-ins are operated by the social network Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA (hereinafter “Facebook”). Facebook plug-ins are identified in the context of PARAVAN GmbH’s online presence by the Facebook logo (white “f” on a blue tile), by the add-on “Like” (thumbs up symbol) or by the add-on “Facebook social plug-in”.
When visiting our website or a sub-site of our website which contains a Facebook plug-in of this kind, your computer’s browser establishes a direct link with Facebook’s servers. This will transmit the content of the Facebook plug-in to your browser and will be integrated in the website or sub-site of our website shown as a result. This means that the information that you visited our website or the relevant sub-site of our website will be transmitted to Facebook. PARAVAN GmbH draws your attention to the fact that your visit to our website can be assigned to your personal Facebook user account, if you are logged into your personal Facebook account while visiting our website or a sub-site thereof. By using Facebook plug-ins, such as clicking the “Like” button or leaving a comment, the relevant data will be transmitted directly to Facebook and stored there and processed.
If you do not have a Facebook account, there is still a risk that Facebook will find out your IP address and store it.
If you have a user account with Facebook and refuse to let Facebook collect personal and/or other data about you via the PARAVAN GmbH online presence and link them with your membership data stored at Facebook, process or use them, you must log out of your Facebook account before visiting our website and its sub-sites. You can also block Facebook plug-ins with the help of certain add-ons for your browser, such as with the “Facebook blocker” add-on.
You can learn about the purpose and scope of the collection, processing and other use of data by Facebook as well as your rights regarding this and configuration options for protecting your individual privacy and your personal data from Facebook’s guidelines of data usage (see de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
Use of Twitter
Various functions of the online service Twitter are integrated on the PARAVAN GmbH website and its sub-sites. These Twitter functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, California 94107, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Twitter”). If you have a Twitter user account and use the “Re-tweet” function there, the websites you have visited or sub-sites of our online presence will be linked with your own Twitter account and disclosed to other users. Under certain circumstances, personal and/or other data will be transmitted to Twitter in the event of this information being linked and disclosed, which will be processed and/or otherwise used there.
You can learn about the purpose and scope of the collection, processing and other use of data by Twitter as well as your rights regarding this and configuration options for protecting your individual privacy and your personal data from the “Twitter data protection guide” (see twitter.com/de/privacy). You can change the data protection settings of your Twitter user account in the settings of your Twitter user account at any time at twitter.com/account/settings.
